Here is why DJ Zinhle's husband, Murdah will be absent at AKA's funeral and memorial service
AKA's family announced that DJ Zinhle's husband, Murdah Bongz whose real name is Bongani Mohosana will not be attending the funeral and memorial service of the late rapper.
The Forbes family released a statement announcing the details of Kiernan Forbes “AKA's” funeral and memorial service which will happen this week.
The concluding part of the statement acknowledged Murdah's family but revealed that he will not be coming for the funeral and memorial services due to observing cultural protocol.
The Bongani update sparked a debate on social media and it has the DJ trending.
“In Tsonga culture, you can't attend the funeral of a person who once had sexual relations(marriage, gf/by, nyatsi, fling) with your partner. It can lead to severe sickness which results in death within a year or 2. So that is why Bongani can't attend AKA'S funeral,” a tweep explained.

People on this platform can be dumb sometimes. The focus has now shifted from mourning AKA to why is Bongani not allowed to attend the memorial and funeral service, even after the family provided the reason why. Y'all be nosey and can't give the family a break 🤮🤮#RIPKiernan

The family acknowledges Bongani as their extended family but men are out here writing think pieces about how his wife is disrespectful towards him, for mourning the father of her child
